Sports Illustrated-The NBA and Adidas unveiled Thursday the short sleeve jerseys that will be worn during this year’s Christmas Day quintuple-header. The solid-color jersey designs feature an over-sized team logo on the front; the player’s number has been moved from the chest to the left sleeve.
I don’t think these look too bad, but they don’t really look like basketball jerseys. It looks like a soccer uniform with NBA team logos. I guess the logos are all shiny silver since its for Christmas and they want to look like an ornament or something.
NBA is missing out on the Celtics for Christmas this year. I know they aren’t the star powered team of the last few years when the Christmas game was a given, but the lack of a green uniform on Christmas is a little bit of a let down.
They do, however, make a Celtics version of the Christmas jerseys.
